Our Fourth Anniversary

Beginning Monday, May 1, 2017 Empower Boxing Alexandria will be celebrating it’s Fourth Anniversary and we want you to join in the fun!  We have a number of fantastic events and celebrations all month long.

Four years ago, I never imagined that Empower Boxing would be as successful as it has become.  We have expanded from offering only three classes per week with only two instructors to now having two locations with a combined 14 classes and an amazing team of seven instructors.

We offer a huge variety of classes and programs.  We started with boxing and kickboxing.  Since 2013, we have added MMA, Empower 30, Empower Uncaged, Strength, Kickboxing Skills, Boxing Skills, Convergent Combat Training, and personal training services.

It is amazing to witness so much growth and improvement in our program in the last four years.  I cannot imagine right now what the next year will be like much less the next four.

Thank you so much for being part of Empower Boxing and helping us keep Central Minnesota kicking for 4 years!

Community Involvement

Empower Boxing believes that we need to help support our community in any way we are able to.  Last year for our anniversary we organized a Kick-fest to support the Alexandria Salvation Army.  This year we want to do something just as important.  That is why we have decided to help support a new organization in Alexandria that is working to combat human trafficking and child exploitation in the area.  This new organization is Forever Reaching to Eliminate Exploitation in Alexandria (F.R.E.E. Alexandria) and is committed to preventing human trafficking and child exploitation.  

On May 22, 2017, F.R.E.E. Alexandria is organizing a human trafficking education event that is open to the public and especially any leader who works with students in the 12 – 15 year old age group.  Human trafficking is a huge problem in Minnesota and specifically the Alexandria area due to our major roadways, abundant sporting, hunting, and fishing events, wonderful tourist attractions, large commercial truck stop, and nearby Interstate rest area.  All of these features put together, not one alone, mean that the youth of the Alexandria area are prime targets for trafficking recruiters.  Human trafficking is a problem here in our community.

If you have any doubts about the problem that human trafficking is in West Central Minnesota, please take a quick look at the Facebook page and see the huge number of stories about trafficking problems in the area.

Empower Boxing wants to help in the fight to stop the scourge that is human trafficking!  As a team, we have decided to help them by doing two connected events.

Fundraising T-shirt

Starting tomorrow May 1, we will be selling a special one-time run of F.R.E.E. Alexandria Knockout Human Trafficking t-shirts.  These shirts will be only $20 plus shipping and and will be a fundraiser for F.R.E.E. Alexandria.  All the profits from the sale of these shirts from May 1 to May 19 will be given to the organization to help fight human trafficking.

The t-shirts are Gildan Ultra-cotton t-shirts and run very consistent in sizing.  If you have purchased a t-shirt from Empower Boxing before and received a good fit, these shirts will be the same size.  They are great shirts.  They will be produced after the order and then sent out to all of the people who have ordered the shirt.

Child Protection and Self-Defense Class

Following the May 22 education event, Empower Boxing Alexandria is going to host a Child Protection and Self-Defense Class at 5:30 pm on Friday, May 26.  This course will be focused on teaching you how to protect your children from harm, how to help them to protect themselves by giving you strategies you can teach at home, and teaching you how to keep yourself safe from harm.

This class will be a 90 minute course that will give you many skills for you and your loved ones.  It will be a martial arts, boxing, and self-defense focused course where you will receive knowledge on how to stop violence from touching you and your family but also

New Apparel!

It has been some time since we launched a new apparel item and this is the time for the new item!  The official announcement of the brand new Empower Boxing quarter-zip pull-over jacket!

This jacket is available in both men’s and women’s styles in sizes Small to 4X Large. Dani owns a jacket of this same brand and style.  She enjoys hers immensely and has had it for some time.  It has stood up well and she wears it quite often.

The women’s style has thumb holes but the men’s style does not come with thumb holes.

This is a high quality jacket with a screen printed three color logo on the front of the jacket.  The logo is small and discrete, it will be a great addition to your collection and a great way to show off your Empower Boxing spirit.

This jacket will be only $40!
